Veritas Advdisk not visible from appliance CLI

Hello,

I have one NBU advandisk 1advol that not mounting on the system (verify from NBU appliance). Below is the entry from /etc/fstab.

/dev/vx/dsk/nbuapp/pdvol        /disk   vxfs    _netdev,nodev   0 0
/dev/vx/dsk/nbuapp/catvol       /cat    vxfs    _netdev,nodev   0 0
/dev/vx/dsk/nbuapp/advol        /advdisk        vxfs    _netdev,nodev   0 0
/dev/vx/dsk/nbuapp/cfgvol       /config         vxfs    _netdev,nodev   0 0
/dev/vx/dsk/nbuapp/1advol       /advanceddisk/dp1/1advol        vxfs    _netdev,nodev   0 0

During appliance reboot, I notify that there is warning to run fsck to the 1advol.

Can i proceed with the fsck on the targeted fs? What is the impact if fsck happen to be unsuccessful? , since i can see the 1advol storage utilization showing correct size and data usage from NBU appliance Web Console.

Appreciate if you guys can advise me on this situation.

Btw, I just ventured in Veritas technology and looking forward to learn more on this.

Thank you in advance!

Cheers~

Further checking found this :-

- [Info] Performing sanity check on disks and partitions... (5 mins approx)
- [Warning] The 'AdvancedDisk' partition '1' is not mounted...
- [Info] Mounting the 'AdvancedDisk' partition '1'...
- [Error] Failed to mount the 'AdvancedDisk' partition '1'. A full file system check (fsck) needs to be performed on this partition.
- [Error] Failed to connect to server smtp.gmail.com.

I believe this is the issue that im facing at moment. should i proceed with fsck, or is there any way to fix this?

Appreciate for any advise.

Thanks!

the vxfs file systems is rather mature & stable, so likely it is not that bad.

If if the file system is broken beyond repair, the data on the file system is luckily backup data and not orginal data.
